Geraldine “Jerrie” was born in Cleveland on May 24, 1935, and passed away peacefully, with family at her side, at Breckenridge Village in Willoughby on November 18, 2020. She was a three-year resident of Eastlake, and prior to that, she resided in New Bern, North Carolina. Jerrie also lived in New Jersey and worked as a Manager at Stern’s Department Store. Her hobbies included golfing, playing Bingo, day trips and dinner with friends, bird watching, and traveling, most often back and forth from New Bern, North Carolina to visit her family in Cleveland, Ohio. A favorite trip was when she went to Hawaii with her beloved husband Lou. Jerrie loved animals, especially cats. She was a Cleveland sports fan (primarily the Cleveland Indians) and always enjoyed weekly game nights with friends, and spending time with her family. Family members describe Jerrie as being a very social, generous, giving person who was also witty, strong-willed, hardworking and devoted to her husband Lou, her family and her Catholic faith. She will be dearly missed.
Contributions may be made in memory of Jerrie to Disabled American Veterans, Wounded Warrior Project, or the Alzheimer’s Association.
